Seminole County (Fla.)


Chuluota is a derivative of "Chuluoto," the Creek word meaning "Isle of Pines," "Pine Island," "Land of Lakes and Pines," or "beautiful place." Many of Chuluota's earliest American settlers migrated from North Carolina following the American Civil War. The settlement was first laid out by Henry Flagler's Chuluota Land Company as a competitor town to Orlando.

Chuluota's citrus industry suffered during the Great Freeze of 1894-1895, but the town was somewhat revived during the Florida land boom of the 1920s. Chuluota was again devastated by the Great Depression of the 1930s, but was revitalized during the 1950s and 1960s.
